. >> and, john allen, you're watching right along with us. these are some extraordinary events we're seeing. >> they are absolutely remarkable. you know, i can tell you, john and zoraida, based on the reporting i've been doing this week, i think pope francis has charmed the entire world except for one small constituency which are his security patrol who are quite frankly at witt's end what he's going to do next and how to keep him safe. obviously this is a pope who is determined to be as close to his people as possible, not to be walled off from them, and at a pastoral level, at a human level, that's a remarkably endearing quality, but for the people who are charged with his security, it also has got their blood pressure up. i think we're seeing additional indications this morning of how he's going to be somebody that they're going to have to sort of figure out a new script to make sure he can be as close to people as possible but at the same time not be putting himself in harm's way. >> john, i want to stay with you for a second here and talk about some of the dignitaries that will be atte
in this country which is by far the fastest growing group in this country. >> to father john wauck in rome about this question of the ecumenical nature of this moment, the unity of christian churches, the idea there was one jesus, maybe there should be one church at the end of the day but father john wauck, as you see these delegations from the various christian churches especially the orthodox churches, how does it strike you? >> well, i think the different orthodox churches have different relationships with rome. some of them are actually quite close and sort of actively seeking union with rome. it's the greeks that have traditionally -- the greeks and russians who have been furthest from rome so the fact that bartholomew is here today really is a historic event. there was a brief moment of reunion actually in the 1400s. i mean it's not entirely true that there was a thousand years since the greeks and the orthodox -- eastern orthodox and roman church were in union but it was very short-lived because of the fall of constantinople to the turks shortly afterwards, in fact, reflected on the doors
encompass practically every denomination you can imagine, john. >> jim, you are in rome with the crowd starting to trickle in there. you have established that the pope has in a few days quite a connection with the italian people. >> i think so, yes. one of the things that has been i think quite attractive for a lot of people is the informality, his approach to people and the fact that he's been out in the crowds. of course, it's been a nightmare for the security people because they just don't know what to expect. we don't, in fact, know too much what to expect. we know the outline for the mass and we know how it basically will transpire according to the vatican, but there may be some ad lib moments. one of the things we're looking for, we haven't gotten quite yet from the vatican press office, the pope's remarks, the home homily. we've already been warned the pope might deviate and ad lib from there. we've got to do a little bit better job than reporting than perhaps the vatican press core has in the past. >> jim bittermann, we'll be back to you. everyone loves the hope who mixes it up
as they are greeting him. i want to go to john thavis in rome having covered the papalcy for 30 year. this is one of those changes that pope francis has made. in the past several day, what you've seen, what stands out, what do you make of this guy? >> one word, simplicity. we've just seen it here. the plan had -- the program was for all of the cardinals to come up and make this profession of obedience. i think he realized this is going prolong the service by about an hour and a half. the new pope is said to like shorter liturgies. that's why he also eliminated the offertory ceremony. he will not deliver communion. which surprised people. he does not want to make himself a attraction. getting in line for communion with the pope gave the people an idea they were privileged. this is a different style. like we have seen him adrop a different style in the way he greets people, the way he addresses crowds and the way he generally acts in front of the world. >> john, thanks very much. we want to let you know, the inaugural mass is about to begin now that the moments of symbolic inauguration of the papac
-controlled house. for more on this we turn to cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood. john, how does all this play out? >> well, lester, look, they are going to fight. and they may not be able to reconcile these two documents. the house budget would balance after ten years. repeal obama care. no tax increases. the senate budget doesn't get to balance after ten years, it includes $1 trillion of tax increases, even some stimulus money to try to get the economy going. but it's significant that they're fighting at a lower level of intensity and turmoil. notice that the congress left for easter break without a crisis over a government shutdown. there was no crisis over potential debt limit, and government default earlier this year. could come back this summer but so long as it lasts, that's calming for the markets and good for the economy, and it may, lester, leave some space still for a compromise in which democrats would agree to changes in cuts in medicare and social security, and republicans would come up with a little bit more tax revenue, lester. >> all right, john harwood tonight,

"starting point" begins right now. >>> good morning again. our "starting point," president obama in the west bank with face-t face-t face-to-face with world leaders. the press conference is scheduled to start in a few minutes from
from what we saw earlier. it reminds me an awful lot of john paul ii. people do much the same thing. >> can we listen in here a little bit? i think this is the second reading, now in spanish. >> translator: the promise of inheriting the world was not made to abraham and his descendants on account of any law. but on account of the righteousness which consists in faith. that is why what fulfills the promise depends on faith, so that it may be a free gift and be available to all of abraham's descendants. not only those who belong to the law. but also those who belong to the faith of abraham, who is the father of all of us. as scripture says, i have made you the ancestor of many nations. abraham is our father in the eyes of god. in whom he put his faith and who brings the dead to life and calls into being what does not exist. though it seemed abraham's hope could not be fulfilled, he hoped and he believed. and through doing so, he did become the father of many nations, exactly as he had been promised. your descendants will be as many as the stars. this is the faith that was considered a

in 1978, pope john paul i said, quote, this is not the time to return to a ceremony and an object considered, wrongly, to be a symbol of the temporal power of the pope. father i take it perhaps he felt it was a little pretentious at least for him. >> sure. and for this pope as well. everybody, in unison, in union anunion has remarked. we see him i believe the mitre he's wearing, he has brought from argentina. i think he insisted on wearing that rather than the more ornate m mitres that he could have chosen. >> this is, brian yennis let me go back to you in rome. this is the first jesuit and latin american to become pope. so it is certainly a momentous occasion for the world but certainly for the americas. brian, talk to us about that. >> reporter: it's unbelievable that the oldest church, at 2,000 years old, for the americans and latin americans here in brazil and not only in brazil but also in the united states, it's a moment in which the church has finally identified you know what? you're there. and for latin americans, it's not only a moment of vindication,
roads as well. >>> u.s. secretary of state john kerry is in amman, jordan today after a surprise visit to iraq this weekend. he says u.s. lawmakers worry that after years of receiving u.s. help iraq is not behaving like an ally. kerry has asked the ira prime minister not to allow iranian aircraft to use iraq's airspace. u.s. believes the planes are carrying arms to the syrian regime. nick pay ton waton walsh was th. >> reporter: his first visit should have been about rebuilding a country's dwindling influence where they've invested so much blood and treasure but it was overshadowed by events next door in syria. u.s. officials clear they believe iraq isn't doing enough to stoplights over iran to syria of weapons and fighters to assist the assad regime. john kerry said had he a very spirited discussion with iraqi prime minister nuri al maliki was was asked for further information. not exactly the concession he wanted there. also during this visit news broke of the resignation of opposition leader, something which mr. kerry described as many inevitable, saying they'd already begun working
's schedule, though, as you just saw. he has arrived in ramallah in the west bank. john king is helping cover this trip. he is in jerusalem right now. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning, john. this is a very important visit by the president. you heard when he was in israel yesterday, president netanyahu saying sure, i'll go back to the bargaining table. he urged the palestinians to come back with no preconditions. one of the preconditions of the palestinians was that mr. netanyahu stop construction in the west bank. interesting moment. those in israel believe president netanyahu has to say that but that he doesn't see an opportunity for peace. president abbas has said he wants to come back to the bargaining table but can he deliver the palestinians? those rockets fired just this morning from the palestinian territory of gaza, controlled by hamas, of course. a reminder that mr. abbas speaks for the palestinian authority in the west bank but does not necessarily speak for the palestinians in gaza. president obama trying to navigate a very difficult challenge. he would like to get the
right now, bill, but reality while people are hoping for it including house speaker john boehner he is not very optimistic at all that democrats and republicans can achieve a grand bargain on the nation's budget deal. having said that, you will recall that the president did launch a major charm offensive, reaching out to republicans and democrats to find some common ground, in getting america's fiscal house in order. but some republicans remain skeptical about the president's sincerity. congressman paul ryan, who we just heard from, expressed doubts that the president's recent comment that the america is not in an immediate debt crisis. ryan contends america is teetering on the edge of a crisis and it will have serious repercussions. >> you know who gets first hurt in the debt crisis, the poor and elderly. that is what we're trying to prevent from happening. pro-growth economic policies to get people working to bring in more revenue and get the entitlement system under control so it doesn't go bankrupt so people can seriously plan for the promises government made for them in reirrel

from john king in jerusalem and ivan watson in jordan. >> let's start with those accusations of chemical warfare in syria yet to be verified. what does that mean for the u.s. involvement in this conflict? ivan watson, you're following the story from nearby amman. tell us what you're hearing about even what happened? >> conflicting reports and most of the information is coming from the syrian government which first made the accusation on tuesday accusing rebels of carrying out some kind of chemical weapons attack in a government-controlled town to the west of aleppo that killed at least 25 people and wounded scores of people. the rebels were very quick to deny that charge. and in turn accuse the government of misfiring one of its own chemical weapons at that town. so we really don't know one way or the other some chemical weapons experts, michael, have said from the evidence we've seen on syrian state tv, it's not enough to really conclusively make the case that any chemical weapons were used. take a listen to what the u.s. ambassador to syria, robert ford, said to cnn. he say

%. john kerry also won 60% more votes than al gore had won four years before -- had won at 6% 6% morees -- had won votes. there was a huge increase in turnout. in this election, barack obama received 3.5 million fewer votes than he received four years before. a 5% decrease in votes. mitt romney received about 1 million more votes than john mccain. said andmmonly reported that he received fewer popular votes than mccain, and that is because of the delay of california and some of the other west coast states in reporting their numbers, but when they finally came in, he did. obama clearly benefited from a superior micro targeting and turnout effort, building on what the bush campaign had done in 2004 and then the substantial advances the obama campaign made in 2008 and working through a four-year period. they used consumer preferences and things of that nature to identify strong and unwavering obama voters, and then they used personal contact with a message. towards the voter propensities. geared towardsge the voters' propensities. you can see the results in the 12 target states, most of wh
